Hey rOckY, thanks! I'm going to try to get this group motivated and try to have some interesting discussions. We'll see if it works! I need something to keep me sane while I look for a job. Being unemployed is no fun! Hope you're well, look forward to talking to you more!
Herbert, comic books and Murakami! A man after my own heart. Have you ever read anything by Gene Wolfe or M. John Harrison? Wolfe's Book of the New Sun series is a fantastic "journey" sort of endeavor full of mysteries and half-truths, and Harrison's books share a similar quality to Murakami's in that nothing is spelled out, everything is a little mystery and full of emotion.
I will definitely check your site. If you have time, you might also want to browse thru my poetry at http://www.allanandres.blogspot.com/
I do originals, as well as adaptation into Filipino of different works of different poets as Pablo Neruda, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and many others. Thanks.
Hi, I'm working with the Telegraph, and I thought you might like to know about a new project by Alexander McCall Smith. He's writing an online novel at www.telegraph.co.uk/online novel finishing in February. I saw your review of No 1 Ladies Detective Agency, so thought you might be interested in more of the authors work. You can catch up on previous chapters on the site. I've also made a group here, where you might like to discuss the project. If you join, you'll be my first member! I hope you enjoy the story.
I agree. I was a bit angry about the ending because of their self-purpose. I did read the prequels and so when I got to the last chapter of "Hunters" I thought to myself "There is no way Frank Herbert thought this up." Just read the last two chapters of Chapterhouse and it becomes terribly obvious that F.Herbert and B. Herbert had a different idea in mind. I will, however, read "Sandworms" I'll just be bored with the thinking machine chapters.
Oh, I don't like these messages either. My email says I have messages but it's too hard to find them on Shelfari.
Wouldn't it be fun meeting Filipino shelfarians online? Talking about favorite books, Filipino or otherwise. Sharing great places to find bargain books. Talking about local events that get book geeks like us excited. Join the group Flips Flipping Pages to get the most out of the shelfarian experience.
Hello and welcome to Shelfari! I noticed you have numerous iterations of books by Haruki Murakami--what genre do these fall under?
And what's your opinion on Shel Silverstein? I've never quite been able to decide if his amusing poems outweigh the disturbing ones... I have fond memories of the books as a child, but when I went to purchase one, flipped through too many poems that were so very odd. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
